I guess it’s been a while since I posted anything. In that time I have become a software developer and have worked to declutter my life both physically and emotionally.

I think I have finally figured out where I want to go with my crafting and this blog. I’ve also started an Instagram and an Etsy if you are interested in supporting my art.

Color Sets: Classic Mix

This is a list of what I’m referring to as the classic colors in all the following color sets.  These are the beads that come in the 22k and  11k buckets, 6k group bead bucket, and the 1k bag “Multi beads” (80-19000). I am fairly confident that I have a correct list with the work I have done in ensuring the color list is complete and correct.  First I found lists of beads from various website. Several of the lists have pictures of the colors. In cases where there were differences between lists, I would buy 1k packs of the colors in questions and under natural sunlight, I would look at the color to determine the correct color.

  • Raspberry
  • Pink
  • Red
  • Blush
  • Hot Coral
  • Yellow
  • Cheddar
  • Butterscotch
  • Kiwi Lime
  • Dark Green
  • Pastel Green
  • Parrot Green
  • Toothpaste
  • Light Blue
  • Turquoise
  • Dark Blue
  • Pastel Lavender
  • Purple
  • Plum
  • Tan
  • Light Brown
  • Brown
  • White
  • Grey
  • Black

  • Neon Pink

When I am making the other color sets I will split out the classic colors in order to make it more clear what colors are in the buckets, bags, or kits.

Color Sets Introduction

As I spent more time sorting beads, I had to come up with a way to store the beads in a way that made finding the correct beads easy. For me this meant 2 things, first I needed to find a storage system. Second I wanted to figure out the names for all the colors.

There are several colors that do not come in the super large buckets. I wanted to be able to still sort buckets but get the colors that I need. Overall I discovered that there are not lists of the colors in all the buckets. As of today some of the lists are on the main pages on the Perler website but those are few and far between on the solid colors you can buy in 1000 bags.

As I sorted the beads I also started to try to figure out the colors that came in the other tubs. There were colors that I knew were not part of the classic tubs and wanted to be able to sort the beads and get the colors that were not part of the large tubs.

Please note: I do know that colors in buckets can change over time. Case in point the stock photo of the 18k buckets and the beads I will list. If I notice there is a difference when I am sorting I will update.

If you notice any variances please let me know!
